WOAD (1300 AM) is a radio station licensed to Jackson with an urban gospel format. WOAD is owned by YMF Media LLC through licensee YMF Media Mississippi Licensee LLC.

History[edit]

The 1300kHz frequency was assigned the WRBC call letters for several years. Around 1978, the transmitter site was rebuilt and call letters were changed to WKXI-AM.

In March, 1996, the WOAD call letters and gospel format moved to the more powerful 1300 kHz, after swapping frequencies with then-sister station WKXI-AM.

On January 11, 2004, WOAD started simulcasting on FM—at 105.9.

July 2, 2009, WOAD dropped its FM simulcast and resumed AM-only broadcasting.
